"Use this slightly spicy, flavored butter for grilled meats with a Latin flavor. Top meat right off the grill with a tablespoon or so. Make for day of use." — Nina

chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tablespoons
crushed red pepper flakes
salt to taste
Tangy and delicicous! Used Cilantro and Lime Butter to baste shrimp skewers, added depth to the finished shrimp sticks-will make again!
I made this to go with Fajitas and my family loved it. I did add a little bit of Chili Powder and some chopped Garlic. It worked up quick and easy.
This went fantastic over grilled fish and chicken. I made a whole grilled chicken, rubbing this butter under the skin. Really perked up the flavor. I took someone's earlier suggestions of adding minced garlic and red pepper flakes to this too.
This recipe is so simple but soooo good! It's just as wonderful slathered on sliced skirt steak as it is on just-off- the-barbecue rib eye steaks. It does not dissapoint.
I've used this and variations of it on grilled corn on the cob - wonderful! Don't forget to put it on under the husks AFTER soaking (yes, I really did do it once) and if the cilantro (or other large leaf herb) is not chopped finely, you may want to remove them before serving.
This butter is out of this world! We won't consider eating corn on the cob without it ... I've even planted my own cilantro to make sure I've got it on hand for this recipe ... you won't be disappointed with this recipe ... Thanks for sharing!!
I made this minus the red pepper and spread it on corn-on-the-cob. It livened up an otherwise plain vegetable. Thanks for the idea that I'll use again!
Great. Used ground cayenne instead of red pepper flakes.
